As the title suggests every location has its " stories " about WW2. I was ask if I could trace a local story about a tank that supposedly crashed through a bridge and into the river killing the crew. The bridge in question is Kelham bridge over the river Trent on the A617 ( still an accident black spot ) just outside Newark. Now everyone I can think of has heard the story but don't have any details ( like most folklore ) I can not find any details of any military vehicle crashing on the bridge. I did find the story of 2 RE's who drowned while on a bridge building exercise a little up stream and were pulled out on Teal's wharf next to the bridge. If anybody has come across details. All local burials are accounted for in other incidents although any casualties may have been returned to their families.
